that, it will give what? give the energy to ping-pong ball and it itself will slow down. and so what do you do is you take these things and you bounce them off atoms like the size of carbon. did you ever hear about the heavy water? you bounce them off light atoms or molecules and these things will slow down, so they're moderated and will cause the reaction of more of this fission. you call--nuclear fission, gang, breaking apart, nuclear fission, and you will fission more atoms. anyway, this is something that cause an awful lot of excitement. because along with these two, it turns out the kinetic energy of these particles and these, all flying apart, is awesome. the energy that takes to light up new york city comes about as a result of water pouring over niagara falls. and every water drop has an energy of about this much, four electron volts. electron volts are tiny unit of energy. it's microscopic unit of energy, yeah? but four electron volts per water drop, tnt-- [makes sounds] --you get about 30 electron volts. high-octane gasoline, about 30 electron volts per molecule of combustion,

century, e=mc2, which tells us that that which we call energy and that which we call mass, two sides of the same coin. if you go to stanford, california, you'll see the stanford linear accelerator. you're driving down the freeway 280, there's a great big long concrete tube, two miles long. and that concrete two-mile-long tube, they fire electrons. and these electrons go right down a vacuum pipe. gotta get all the air away, they don't want to get these electrons to get obstructed. and they'll fire for two miles down that tube. and when they get to the end, boom, they smatter into particles of matter and they smash it all apart and they take a look to see what it's made of. for example if i wanna know what this watch is made of, the one way to find out what this watch is made of is to take the watch, find a concrete wall, take that watch and throw it as fast as i can. and when it splatters, take some pictures, quick. and that way i can find out what's inside. does that make sense? well, that's what the physic-ers do. they do that with atoms and they smash them apart and they see all th

international. samantha smith is also with us, leader of the world wildlife fund global climate and energy initiative. kumi naidoo, the two of you held a news conference, along with a few others, which got some attention. you are calling on u.s. climate negotiators to step down. why? >> when president obama made his election victory speech, he broke his silence on climate change, what it would do to america's children. he then subsequently said that he wants to be a global leader on climate change, but the position that has been taken by the united states in these talks is business as usual, has not reflected the urgency of what has just happened in the united states through hurricane sandy, the fact that there is massive drought in many parts of the country itself, and huge climate impacts happening in a world elsewhere. the bottom line is, the politics of the negotiation is out of touch with all the science says, and president obama and other political leaders need to recognize, nature does not negotiate. we have to change. sadly, these negotiators are not reflecting that urgency and the

paintings of domestic american scenes called forth his deeper creative energies, but magazine illusations of the same everyday activities provided his livelihood. the carefree quality of these scenes appealed to a country recovering from the civil war. americans turned to lighter concerns-- exalting the innocence of childhood, the therapy of the outdoors, the benefits of leisure. throughout his life, homer made seasonal excursions, especially to the shore in summer, to seek subjects for his illustrations and to pursue his painting. at the age of 37, he was at the exact midpoint of his life. acutely aware that his youth was behind him, he was bored by the life of an illustrator, which he called a treadmill existence. in 1873, homer spent his summer in gloucter, massachusetts. there began his first serious use of watercolors. among homer's contributions to american art, perhaps the greatest was his transformation of this medium from its limited use for colored drawings to an art form expressive in its own right. homer's gloucester scenes of children and outdoor life were a continuation of

for our children to use up their energy. boy: beep, beep. beep, beep. owww! hendrick: in some situations, noise can also be an excellent outlet for expressing aggression. yes, and sometimes there's nothing like a good bashing of the play-doh or hammering the ol' workbench to relieve stress, tension, and aggressive feelings in a child. girl: she is and you are. woman: are what? you're some scary monsters. some scary monsters? hendrick: my philosophy is that, like our children, we're human, too. but we're also role models, and intense anger can frighten children. that's why it's particularly important for us to recognize and control our flash points, especially on those dark days when it seems like your children know just where and when to push all your wrong buttons. woman: that kind of hurts my feelings when you call me a monster. that makes me sad. you're still a monster. i'm sorry that you feel that way. you're a monster. what kinds of things get under your skin when you're working with children? which one of your buttons do they push that can send you over the edge? woman: they are. t

, but as 2012 dawns, our group green climate fund remains empty. the international energy agency tells us we have five years until the widow to avoid irreversible climate change closes. the science tells us we have five years maximum. you are seeing -- saying, give us 10. the most stark a trailer your generation's responsibility to ours is that you call this ambition. where is the courage in these rooms? now is not the time for incremental actions. in the long run, these will be seen as the defining moments of an era in which narrow self interests prevailed over science, reason, and compassion. there is real ambition in this room, but it is being dismissed as a radical, deemed not politically possible. stand with africa. long-term thinking is not radical. what is radical is to completely alter the planet's climate to betray the future of my generation and to condemn millions to death by climate change. what is radical is to write off the fact that change is within our reach. 2011 was the year in which the sun and jordy found their voice, the year when the bottom shook the top. 2011 was the y

and saying, "this is why i'm doing this. this is keeping me alive emotionally. this is providing the energy that i need to continue my life." barbara korsch: everett koop has made statements that 90% of the errors in medical diagnosis are due to poor communication. there's a famous study by a fellow researcher in the area, dr. beckman, who did one study of a hundred visits in an internist's office and found on the average that the doctor interrupted the patient after 18 seconds. the patient's story... often adds things that, if you were just getting the task and the measurements, you wouldn't get-- which are crucial even from a biologic point-of-view, if not from a psychologic-- for the patient. if they haven't had a chance to tell the story, they feel they haven't been understood. most doctors are looking for a patient who they can get in and get out in a short period of time, and give good quality care to. what doctors will respond positively to, however, is the patient who takes initiative, the patient who says, "you know, since our last visit, i've got some questions on my mind i'd like
